A Chesapeake island homecoming—and a life-changing discovery When Ryan Hastings first came to Teaberry Island, he was a troubled teen on his last chance. He’s returning as a renowned scientist, checking in on his widowed foster mother. But one thing hasn’t changed—Ryan’s feelings for the girl next door whom he loved…and left. Mellie Anderson has a son now, and a good life that Ryan believes he’s still too damaged to share. But he knows he can help young Alfie, who’s getting picked on at his new school. Mellie is grateful her gifted son is getting extra support, and torn about where it’s coming from. Ryan has no idea he’s Alfie’s father. No matter how valid her reasons were, could Ryan ever understand why she didn’t tell him? But in this close-knit community, friendship and forgiveness are always near at hand, and forever love might be waiting just next door.

My thoughts on The Forever Farmhouse

Talk about a book that makes you happy.

Lee Tobin McClain is a new favorite author of mine since I read First Kiss at Christmas last year. I have since gone back and devoured all of her other stories! 

In this one Lee Tobin McClain started off grabbing my attention quickly, that opening, and first few chapters just tug at you. I will admit that I am a sucker for girl next door/rekindled love stories, and The Forever Farmhouse is definitely that.  

Millie and Ryan were well matched, and I thought their emotions where pretty realistic, not long drawn out wishy-washy back and forth. One of my favorite things were the conversations between them. I felt like they were real people with open conversations… mostly.  

Overall, this book was a sweet read that touched the heart and wouldn’t let go. I think readers who like sweet romances will really enjoy this story that has some good depth to it! 

4 Stars. 

*I volunteered to read this book in return for my honest feedback.
